Rangers cancel their Martin St. Louis experiment

The Rangers have canceled their Marty in the Middle show after five episodes. That is a function of things breaking bad for the 2-3-0 Blueshirts, who have struggled to create chemistry while trying to fill the hole created by the absence of injured first-line center Derek Stepan. Journeyman center Chris Mueller, recalled from the AHL Wolf Pack on Friday afternoon, will claim one...

Pleasant surprises dotted through Rangers’ early struggles

Three losses in four games and 12 goals against in the first two home contests certainly isn’t how the Rangers wanted to start the season, but it’s not altogether unexpected. With No. 1 center Derek Stepan and No. 4 D Dan Boyle on the shelf, and a slew of raw youngsters in the lineup, it’s no surprise […] The post Pleasant surprises dotted through Rangers’ early struggles...

Rangers Preview & Predictions for 2014-15

We did it, folks. A summer worth of enduring pictures of Kings players enjoying themselves with the Stanley Cup around the world, watching re-runs of the Stanley Cup Final and the image of Lundqvist flat on his stomach with the Kings celebrating feet away is over. Time to get down to business. It isn’t completely impossible for the Rangers to repeat their successes of last season...

Derek Stepan’s injury leaves multiple roster options

Three cuts were made yesterday, as Matt Lombardi, Steve Kampfer, and Mike Kostka were all placed on waivers. There are more cuts coming today, as Alain Vigneault will need to trim the roster to 22-23 players. That number may or may not include Derek Stepan, who is out with a broken fibula.

Projecting The Rangers’ Opening Night Roster: Final Attempt

Last night was the final game of the preseason, and oh boy was it ever forgettable. I’m currently writing this about an hour after the game occurred and I can remember almost nothing of significance. I just really don’t care to talk about all the nothing that happened so let’s just get straight to my roster predictions, which as usual are a reflection of what I believe Alain...

Rangers to experiment with St. Louis at center

With Derek Stepan‘s injury making an already weaker-at-center New York Rangers team that much more vulnerable down the middle, head coach Alain Vigneault is experimenting with Martin St. Louis as a pivot for at least a preseason game or two. “He says other than the faceoffs he’s pretty comfortable,” Vigneault told Blueshirts United. “I know he’s done it before, so if...

Cap, Stepan Injury May Force St. Louis Move To Center

Last week, when it was announced that Derek Stepan would miss the next 4-6 weeks with a fractured fibula, Martin St. Louis texted Alain Vigneault that he’d be available to fill-in at center. While it was an admirable offer by the 39-year old winger, no one really expected the Rangers head coach to take him up on the offer. Whelp, it’s funny how things change in a week… ...

How Does Stepan Compare to Other First Line Centers?

Perhaps it’s just the Rangers fans that I’ve surrounded myself with on Twitter, message boards, etc. (basically all I have since I live in the great state of Tennessee), but I noticed more negative comments and posts than usual about Derek Stepan last year. Coming off the lockout-shortened season in which the young man paced continue reading...

Derek Stepan’s injury is bad, but not insurmountable for the Rangers

Derek Stepan’s fractured fibula is the first of many challenges the Rangers will face this season. It sucks, but thankfully the timing of the injury doesn’t make his loss insurmountable. The four to six week diagnosis just isn’t long enough to hammer an early nail into the Rangers’ playoff coffin. If the timetable the Rangers released continue reading...

Preseason Game 2: Rangers At Blackhawks

We’re not even two games into the preseason and we already have our first major plot-twist of the season; that being Derek Stepan’s injury.

Now Playing Center For The New York Rangers…Marty St. Louis?

Now that the shock of Derek Stepan being lost for the next 4-6 weeks is beginning to wear off, the Rangers got back to business yesterday trying to figure out how they’re going to move forward. And as is the case with any great team, one of the Rangers top players is stepping up to bat. According to Alain Vigneault, 39-year old winger Martin St. Louis volunteered to take the place...

Quick Thoughts on Dom Moore as 2nd Line Center

With Derek Stepan out for 4-6 weeks due to a fractured fibula, the Rangers are looking for candidates to fill the second line center role, assuming Derick Brassard moves up to the top spot. Vigneault suggested that Dom Moore could be that guy, which would make sense, given that he did some spot duty in continue reading...

So Now What?

Rangers Nation was in complete shock yesterday upon hearing the news that Derek Stepan fractured his fibula after crumpling to the ice under his own weight during a conditioning drill. While the initial news was a shock to the system, when you actually sit back and think about Stepan being out for 4-6 weeks you realize he’ll only be out an estimated 7-10 games.

Derek Stepan's leg is broken, and the New York Rangers may be in big trouble. The team announced the news on Wednesday afternoon; earlier in the day, Stepan went down during practice with an apparent non-contact injury.
